That was one of the few Greek runs I missed (Doh!). I was up in Humboldt and was too broke to make the shows. There was no weed around--all we had was a hefty bag full of trimmings, mostly leaf. But we laid our hands on some shrooms, and headed for the beach. It was a gorgeous day/evening, and I got this intense rush and I KNEW something monumental was going to happen at that show. Of course, I got a few calls the next day regaling me with tales of the Star and accompanying slide show. To this day, I feel that show was the biggest one that got away from me. I didn't miss many NorCal shows between 79 and 87, but I sure missed that one. I remember that day like it was yesterday, as well. Probably the strongest premonition I ever felt. Very psychedelic...
